Peach Tart 


  • 1 x 500g shortcrust pastry block 
  • 6 tbsp peach jam
  • 8 peaches halved and stoned
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar




Preheat the oven to 190°C, 170°C fan, gas 5. Roll the pastry out to an approximate 30cm round shape, trim to neaten. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with baking parchment and chill for 30 mins while you prepare the apricots.

Place the peach jam in a medium bowl, add 1/2 tbsp warm water and mix well to loosen. Add the peaches and mix gently to coat in the jam.
Pile the peaches in the center of the pastry, leaving a 5cm border. Pull up the sides of the pastry and pleat around the peaches, use a little beaten egg to secure the pleats in place if necessary.
Brush the pastry with the remaining egg, then sprinkle over the sugar (concentrating on the pastry).


Bake for 25-30 mins until the pastry is golden and the apricots are soft. Serve warm or cold with whipped cream.

Enjoy 🙂
